Revenue Stamps

Stamp duty is a tax levied on documents.  It started off as being a stamp, called a Revenue Stamp, which was attached to a document, showing that the stamp duty on the document had been paid.  This duty was levied on legal documents such as cheques, receipts, property transfer documents, marriage licences, etc.  Nowadays such a stamp is no longer necessary.

Collecting Revenue stamps is a popular topical subject.
